Marathon: Playlist

As mentioned in many of my previous posts, music inspires me during my runs and gives me the motivation needed to power through races. Knowing the marathon would be over three hours long, I created a list with my favorite songs from all genres and decades. I included a large variety from rock to hip hop and almost everything in between. See my playlist below and get running!

    hello in Australia we are not allowed to have music on course. Although I love your playlist.

    Ive had a few races this year where earphones are banned so I’ve learned to run without music but before I couldn’t go anymore than a mile without it!! Thats a great playlist 🙂

    I was surprised to see you wear earphones on your first marathon. Part of the experience of the marathon is the atmosphere of the crowd. Did you feel you missed out on some of that?

      At times when the crowd was really cheering us on I did turn my music down some! Otherwise, the music really helped 😊 I must have given out over 50 high fives during the race!
